New amilan top shots, new splices, getting ready for bear. Lots of quality fish off Kona right now, get ready. We marked something very big yesterday on our 1/2 day holo holo trip. got her to give us 2 shitty bites. Didn’t stick but any minute now….. couple days off then bck into it. Kona could weigh a good one soon 🤞 . #kona #hawaii #bluemarlin#benchmark @pelagicgear @fire_tailz @seamount_fishing
Caught a 600 today out of 2 bites and pulled hook on one that looked 800 on Monday. Big fish off Kona right now. I had a feeling this might happen this fall. If your chasing a record or after a big blue marlin, now would be a time to think about jumping on a plane. As of now it looks set to fire up.

Day 2 of the Big Island Marlin Tournament. slow fishing with just 3 tags for the fleet. We got lucky late in the afternoon and hooked a nice one. Looked every bit of 600 lbs. We had @viciouscyclefishing hammering on the fish in the @seamount_fishing harness and got her on leader pretty quick while she was still extremely green. She was stubborn and angry and Joe Had to dump the leader before a gaff shot was possible, then just before our second attempt we pulled hook 6 feet from the leader . I’ve said it once I’ll say it again, Marlin fishing ain’t fair. On a positive note we have seen a few decent fish and the tournaments still pretty open going into day three with us tied for second and the leading boat only one tag up. Just need some luck to seal the deal tmrw. #benchmark#kona #bluemarlin #biggamefishing @pelagicgear @seamount_fishing #morecushionforthepushin
